Mary Lynn Coble
M.D., F.A.C.O.G.

Dr. Coble, a native of Gastonia, North Carolina, lives in Richmond with her husband Will, a cardiologist, and their two children. Her favorite activity outside of work is spending time with her kids, so it’s no wonder that the biggest highlight of her job is getting to see people’s joy at the delivery of a baby. What an honor to be a part of that experience!

When she’s not busy caring for her patients, Dr. Coble can be found cheering on her children in athletic events, or taking time to participate in some herself during a tennis match or while skiing. She’s also an avid fan of her alma mater and is known to root for the Clemson Tigers! When Dr. Coble does have some downtime, reading is her activity of choice. Favorites include The Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Gone with the Wind.

“I love the people at VPFW, from the women at the front desk to the nurses and all the doctors. Doctor Coble delivered my daughter. She was very awesome and informative during my pregnancy. I will definitely continue to go to them.” – Facebook Review, 2017
